Thinking about web design, most bloggers would just imagine all sites in shapes of blogs. I was very surprised today, when a client asked me to make an entry billboard for his website. OK, he quit the idea after I explained that the billboard would just put one more click between him and his readers. He was a practical type of person, so he understood and agreed, despite the fact that he would have loved the idea of that opening page with no information on it. I used to think like that some years ago, but since blogging, I try to make websites display to the viewer the most catchy information possible, in order to drag him into reading more. Thinking of this, I’ve encountered this design blog, which drew my attention through two things: first the title: “the blog where web design and style have met”, and then the header photo, which I still don’t know what it is, but I’ve seen it as a giant turtle under strange rays of light.

These two elements made me read further. The last article on that blog was called Top Three Web Design Basics, and it made quite an interesting read, as I had no idea that rhythm can be one of the most important elements of web design.

So, I found out about rhythm in web design starting from a turtle in the sun. Human brain is strange, that’s for sure.
